The Mega Shutter Report: Lomito, Panifico, Eet, and More

New, 2 comments

We've chronicled a number of restaurants closing since the New Year—Palm Court, Devin Tavern, Panya, and so many more—but there's always room for more. Some of this week's stragglers:


1) Soho West: Lomito, the Argentinian/Italian spot at 300 Spring Street (at Hudson) from Jorge Sosa, the owner of Sosa Borella uptown, has closed after just nine months. We wonder how Stacy Sosa, owner of La Estancia around the corner, feels about her victory in the war of the Sosas. [ShutterWire]

2) East Village: EV Grieve reports the unsurprising news that the newest restaurant to take over the cursed space on the northeast corner of East 11th and Avenue B, Panifico, has shuttered. [EV Grieve]

3) Hudson Square: Grub Street sends word that Soho West lunch spot Eet has served its last: "Eet...closed over the New Year and is now a catering facility. Even if the coffee was better than at Inhouse Nosh...Eet’s market-menu pretentions and loungy mod décor (not to mention its ridiculous prices) were nowhere near as endearing." [GS]

4) Park Slope: We have an ambiguous shutter over on Fourth Avenue in Brooklyn. While a commenter writes that Park Slope lesbian bar Cattyshack closed down New Years Day, Gowanus Lounge finds some more info. Message board threads note there is an internal struggle going on between the owners and it may open once again. [ShutterWire; GL]

5) East Village: Hunter Gatherer reports that the East Village branch of fro-yo spot Oko is closed "for renovations" just six months after opening: "...what would a six month old, eco-friendly temple of empty calories require besides a new concept? Will wait and see what happens, but I have never seen customers outnumber employees in this place." [Hunter Gatherer]

6) Upper East Side: And a reader sends the belated news that Portofino Grille on 64th and First closed back in mid-November after 7 years. [Shutter Inbox]
